Weekend in TEXAS!

Friday, Oct. 6th Jerry and I are standing on the beach at Horseshoe Bay on Lake LBJ, where tomorrow Jerry will be officiating at the wedding of a young lady who grew up in our church in Midland (Jessica Marshall). Jessica is being married to her boyfriend of eight years, Nang, on this site--a beautiful setting and a wonderful weather day. Occasions like this surely have to be one of the greatest blessings of ministry--to share in the lives of folks so intimately that on the occasion of their wedding, they ask you to be a part. We are so grateful to be here! Nang and Jessica included Jo and Scott with us at the rehearsal dinner at her parent's new home on the lake last night--an evening with a full moon reflecting off the lake, and the joy of sharing the meal with the Marshalls to catch up on their life. Jo and Scott have joined us at the lakehouse of our friends, Glenn & Louan Rogers, on Lake LBJ - we have had a couple of days of visiting, walking, eating - and sitting on the back porch looking at the spectacular view. In fact, yesterday morning began with breakfast on the porch and the coffee and conversation went on so long that it became lunch time! We will have breakfast together at the Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls (an institution around here) and then part company. We are heading back to Monett MO, where we left our RV in the Garrett's driveway (Mike and Phyllis Garrett's claim to fame is now their grandsons, Eli and Silas, whom you met in prior blogs.) On Tuesday we will head towards Cape Fair on Table Rock Lake for an extended stay - we have no cell service there, and certainly no internet access, so there is no telling when we can write another blog! PS - Sunday - a glorious wedding..what a radiant bride in her wedding dress with barefeet, being brought from her parent's lake house to the beach in their boat driven by her Dad! All the wedding party had leis brought from Hawaii, and that even included ME! I felt so special! The pastor (who did not go barefooted as all the rest of the wedding party) wore a long lei of green leaves. Blessings and hugs to all of you.

You guys are on the move. We are looking forward to seeing you this weekend. Since you won't have cell service, please call before you get there to give us directions. Mike is on his way to D.C. He will be home all day Friday so if you need to call then, you can reach him at home.
